Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"SSH Communications Security (SSH), the world-leading developer of Internet security technologies and developer of the Secure Shell standard, today announced it has expanded its free license program for the new SSH Secure Shell 2.3 products. Recognized as a de-facto standard for Internet security, Secure Shell is currently implemented by over four million commercial and non-commercial users to secure remote administration and file transfers over the Internet. In a move to provide a simple, easy transition path for users of the older SSH1 protocol to the new more secure IETF endorsed SSH2 protocol, SSH also today announced that its SSH Secure Shell 2.3 for Windows Client will ship with backward compatibility with SSH1 servers, including support for RSA's cryptographic algorithm. The new version will be available from www.ssh.com on Aug. 24, 2000. Existing licensees can download a free upgrade."

"Expanding free licensing for our advanced and fully supported SSH Secure Shell 2.3 products will allow many more users and developers to enjoy the internet security benefits of the SSH2 protocols," said George Adams, president and CEO, SSH, Inc. "We are committed to provide users and developers with state-of-the-art security products and support, and this meant expanding and further clarifying our free licensing program to help ensure and encourage wide-spread use."
